BREAKING: 2023 TE Lawson Luckie becomes the first new commit to the national champion Bulldogs

Want to attack every day with the latest Georgia football recruiting info? That’s the Intel. This entry is the first public commitment to the Georgia Bulldogs since the national championship. That’s 2023 4-star TE Lawson Luckie out of Norcross High School.


Lawson Luckie decided to commit to Georgia on Wednesday morning. That just makes sense.

The Georgia legacy took to his social media account to make that pledge known. The 4-star TE is the son of former Bulldog Mike Luckie.

Luckie was one of the famed Luckie triplets that signed to play for Georgia during the Jim Donnan era.

He made several UGA games this weekend and it was seen as largely a matter of when, not if, he would follow in his father’s path.

His process had already been set for some time.

“I honestly have been planning to commit for a while,” he said. “But it took a while to get the stuff I needed to commit together. I was going to do it last week but I didn’t want to take any shine from the team or coaches and do it last week so I settled on today really. Win or lose I was posting today.”

The 6-foot-4, 225-pounder is a very physical player who will do well in Todd Hartley’s room. He joins another Georgia legacy in Pearce Spurlin III as dual legacies at TE in the 2023 class in Athens.

Luckie expressed his desire to stay close to his family in his commitment edit tweet. He noted that his baby brother, Cannon, has a disability.

“I knew since the summer,” Luckie said. “It was just a matter of when. It was Georgia because I trust Hartley in what he says and I want to stay close for my mom and baby brother. It’s hard for them to get around so I feel like I owe to them to do all I can to make it work at UGA.”

“It obviously isn’t the easy route, but I owe it to them.”

He’s currently rated as the nation’s No. 14 TE and the No. 283 prospect in the country on the 247Sports Composite for 2023.

Luckie becomes the ninth commitment in the class for Georgia. His decision now pushes the Bulldogs past Notre Dame for the nation’s No. 1 class in the 2023 cycle.
